7:02 pm
mubarak be released from jail after he has been in prison for just over two years for our prosecutor cleared him of a corruption charge, the former president's release stoking fears the muslim brotherhood will break up the already ashley violence. the brotherhood forces have been clashing with the military targeting police officers torching dozens of churches prompting a contradictory response from the white house. >> mubarak is part of the ongoing egyptian legal process and was charged with crimes and is in the midst of the legal process. because that is internal to egypt i cannot comment but in the case of mr. morsi what we see it is clear there politically you motivated detention not in line with the human rights standards we expect of a government.
7:03 pm
dennis: from the same white house that just last week were not choosing sides in egypt we will take this up tonight with former pentagon official katy mcfarland along with the author of the new book the brotherhood america's next great enemy. joining us tonight. the overthrow of morsi and the onset of violence in cairo has led to erratic and contradictory statements and policies in the response of the white house. many republicans and democrats in congress have been no less a confounding. our chief white house correspondent ed henry. >> just back from vacation obama is immediately facing pressure to deal with a spiraling situation in egypt with chuck hagel declaring the violence must end although he quickly added the administration believes
7:04 pm
it has little leverage. >> ability to influence the outcome is limited. it is up to the egyptian people. they are a large in great sovereign nation. it will be there responsibility to sort this out. >> key republicans disagree in they say it is time to cut off the 1.$3 billion of military aid provided to egypt each yeer. >> we have no credibility we have influence when you do not use that you do not have it. >> we're not using the hearts and minds of each of you have a failed state we will have to suspend our a we cannot support the reaction of the military. >> while they said they review -- reviewing every aspect of president has only an ounce to suspend military

7:06 pm
having on this government. >> but talking about the middle class the prices of egypt is another example of outside the event overshadowing the second term agenda so now more on egypt with the egyptian military will crash of the muslim brotherhood and author of the newly released book, the brotherhood. thank you for being here. let me start with you. of the adl that this president but to return to the democratically a love elected government what they say they do not want any
7:07 pm
more after one year. but to establish some kind of order you have chaos by south introduction by the way set up that we were for the mubarak government and then for the of military government. lou: thank you for that it is a third person reference to the obama administration ended your book you call for a move to a the brotherhood as the next great enemy given with what we have witnessed you have compelling new evidence to support yourrview. >> this is the granddaddy of them all with modern islamic terrorist they created how
7:08 pm
moscow actually make the point in 1928 there would have been notified 11 i say that without hesitation, the jake mohammad of the masterminds behind that attacked belonged to the brotherhood before they formed al qaeda it is the gateway drug to an islamic terrorism that is why i am astounded when they hear the white house mention the muslim brotherhood and human rights in the same sentence. they are fundamentally incompatible it would ever forces are fighting against radical islamist we should be in their corner. >> pointing addition left his support for mubarak's or mohammad morsi or the secular military led by the
7:09 pm
general, this is the administration that doesn't seem to be rigorous to show any kind of reverence to history's teachings. >> there is a lot of transitional fought but no overarching strategic vision i say we are put intoevery civil war of the middle east we're in the middle of it because we need their oil if we get energy independence and we don't need their oil we don't need to be in the middle of these fights. lou: certainly the egyptian people would be happy of great magnitude but poverty is immense in egypt and that is why the number of the arab states are sending billions upon billions of
7:10 pm
dollars but i want to turn to egypt that senator corker brought up that the powers that be at the united states senate, the white house house, republicans and democrats over estimate the united states to exert its will to any part of the united states how could anyone possibly over estimate our influence after 12 years of war under estimate the potential the danger for disaster that results? >> it is astounding. we have the obama administration and mccain and gramm the influences when $.4 billion to the egyptian government but with that will factor the suez canal that egypt controlled
7:11 pm
78% of the oil and liquefied gas passes through on the way to europe and america if the suez is targeted by the brotherhood every american will feel that in their pocketbook everytime they go to the pomp and fill up wheel and gas prices will skyrocket and also don't forget the sinai peninsula is the al qaeda as a hotbed and a tax air-launched there against israel that could spill over egypt's borders into a whiter conflict than whole global economy will feel it. lou: more troubling to me if i may be provincial we have sufficient energy to forestall any possibility to be an impact for the embargo or the disruption but what
7:12 pm
does bother me is a set of leaders, this president senator mccain and senator graham to pronounce each of done worthy of our aid instead of talking constructively about with the natural ally of the united states a secular military that is suppressing radical islamist with the muslim brotherhood and their affiliated organizations. >> also the group keeping peace for 40 years i looked at senator mccain i have a lot of respect for him but i don't think he is right on syria or libya or the us. lou: mike ago thrale a longer list mckee in fine gold, and became kennedy. the list goes on. i will give you the last word to wrap up.
7:13 pm
>> i think this will get worse before it gets better there is a real possibility of civil war in egypt the muslim brotherhood will not go quietly. they waited for decades to get to this moment where they could be in control. they are a violent jihad group and inherently anti-american we should be on this side of the military but i don't think it will happen but this will get bloodier. lou: 54v with us. we recommend his brookline the to you. -- his book to you. we will keep up with america is a potential role of the conflict. we will be right back. securing the border before tackling immigration legislation?

7:19 pm
bill that requires 80 percent apprehension success rate and some consider that a realistic. >> talking to the agents that are there day in and day out they don't see thieves under control. it is a slap in the face for them to grant status to people who have broken the law. >> once you enforce one area they move to another. right and it is east texas now allows lawmakers to tackle other aspects of immigration reform. of course, with compromising with the senate so in midi ways it is the gateway expecting a vote in september or early october. lou: thank you. illinois democratic governor quinn signed the extensive gun control measure into law expanding background checks to cover all firearm purchases of the state including gun sales between private parties.

president's chances to help any democrats up for reelection next year so that fight everyone is focused on , be honest, it is a minor item compared to what could happen to the democrats in 2014. ted cruz does the unimaginable releasing the birth certificate before announcing his candidacy and joe biting gets his team ready for the white house run has the 2016 campaign already begun? next. you make a great team.

7:36 pm
for mubarak before it was against them for morsi before they were against him and for the secular military what kind of mindless nonsense is this on the part of the white house? >> we haven't got one choice to throw our luck with the military that you suggested gives us the best use to salvage our interest in the middle east and throughout the region but bottom line this administration is incoherent. lou: i detect there is a comfort zone that it could not end with al qaeda and radical islamist and never look back.
7:37 pm
are they so absolutely diluted? >> i agree. i have been talking about this over the last several years this administration has actively supported the rise of the islamist from egypt to libya to tunisia even syria in even are being a these troubles that are part of the muslim brotherhood. >> but the militants of are now and that they are terrorists to watch that ap walk away or the white house even for crying out loud. the you cannot even use those words together. with the first international speech mubarak was still in

7:40 pm
there are no term limits for vice presidents joe biden biden, have had it. [laughter] so talk about rand paul and chris christie having a feud , a think this is one of the greatest things to happen to the republican party. the implication from the left that no party should have the real debate, a real conversation or a dialogue that this is nonsense. >> a democrat who like to see hillary clinton is elected to have that circular fire. lou: if you think orthodoxy will work any better for the democrats than it did for the republicans 2012. >> but it will continue if
7:41 pm
the republicans use attack one another. >> it is very healthy for the republican party and i think christie does this to a car about a primary position as the moderate position if jeb bush decides to run. lou: you save jeb bush runs as the conservative? >> he will be running as a moderate so chris christie is picking a fight with rand paul to be the primary moderate choice. lou: that may be very insightful. >> thank you. lou: up next four consecutive losing days for the markets but all is not lost. chase baying economist anthony chan is next.
